Shon Pernice was sentenced to 15 years in prison in connection with his wife’s death on Friday
Police didn’t respond because Williams wasn’t able to get a license plate number. He said he didn’t know who the person was until a week later.
“I (saw) Shon Pernice on TV,” he said. “Both me and my girlfriend said, ‘That’s the guy we saw dumping in back.'”
He said he called the Crime Stoppers TIPS Hotline and described the truck and said where he saw it. The truck was also seen in the area where Renee Pernice’s phone was found a few blocks away.
Williams and his girlfriend live in New Orleans now. He said they had planned a trip to testify at Shon Pernice’s trial, which had been set to start next week.
By the time police got the tip, it was already too late to find her.
Isn’t that pathetic? No police response, nobody checked the trash and Crime Stoppers was so slow and so ineffective.
